My little boy is 3 weeks old today and after 2.5 weeks of excruciating breastfeeding, my lactation consultant suggested he be checked for tongue tie by a pediatric dentist. We went the next day, determined that he was tongue tied, and the dentist performed the procedure using lasers the same day. At first I thought I noticed some relief, but it's still extremely painful when he latches on. Occasionally I get a few pain free moments, but most of the time it still really hurts. My question is whether anyone can give me any insight into how long it will take for the pain to resolve now that he's had the procedure? My nipples are quite cracked and sore, so I'm sure they'll need some healing time as well - although I don't know how long that will take either.
